    Preheat the broiler. Transfer the steaks to a rimmed baking sheet. Broil until cooked to desired doneness, about 4 minutes per side for medium. Transfer the steaks to cutting board and let stand 5 minutes. Cut each steak in half along the grain. Cut each half crosswise against the grain into 10 slices. Top each bread slice with 1 piece of meat and a bit of chimichurri sauce. Arrange toasts on a platter and spoon remaining sauce into small bowl and place in the center of the platter. Serve warm or let stand up to 2 hours at room temperature.
